Rainbow Over Cayuga Lake


A perfect rainbow arching over Cayuga Lake

This photograph was taken the day a sudden and powerful storm developed while I was on a shoot of Taughannock Falls and its various waterfalls. After a quick dash to protect the photo equiptment I waited out the storm down by Cayuga Lake and was rewarded with a glorious rainbow that remained bright for over thirty minutes. Needless to say, I was out framing shots for as long as possible. Only a few came out as well as I had hoped for - and this is my prize panorama.

Late Summer Hay Bales


Hay bales scattered along the horizen



The upstate New York region has small farms scattered across its rolling hills just as these huge hay bales are scattered over the mown field. These always remind me of some ancient ruins -- like the Parthenon in Greece or the fallen temples in Italy. Another reference that leaps to my mind has caused me to name this panorama "Ozymandius."

Rhododendron Path


A pine bark path among blooming rhododendrons.



This panorama was taken at the "Mound" in Cornell Plantations, famous for its collection of exotic varieties of rhododendrons. The blooms begin in late May and extend through much of June, depending on the weather. Among the rhododendrons the visitor will find an extensiv collection of Hostas that their grandmothers could only about. Towering overhead are pine trees providing just enough shade for the understory plants. Scattered about are wooden benches offering a place to sit and enjoy the scene. A panorama like this is the only possibility of capturing the expanse of flowering beauty.

Taughannock Falls Bowl in Winter


A Panoramic photograph showing Taughannock Falls in winter ice.



Taughannock Falls is framed in almost a crater that it has carved out over the millenia. The sheer sides of the cliffs rise up and curve slightly over the walls themselves so that the waterfall is almost never touched by the sun. The only time I've ever seen the water sparkle in sunlight was on midsummer's day. You can see the photograph I took that day. This day I was fortunate (read obstinate) enough to catch the sun breaching the top of the waterfall. The visual effect of seeing the sunlight streaming toward one through ice encrusted rock is breathtaking. The wide span of the photographic print gives a true sense of the immensity of the scene.

Autumn Hills Panorama

A range of hills covered with autumn foliage.



One of the few perfect days last fall gave me the wanderlust so I packed up my gear and did my best to get lost in the hills on small back roads. This is the vibrant scene I came on across the valley. I waited as long as I dared for the flock of Canadian geese to fly to the perfect spot. The little extra humidity in the air brought out an intensity of color that one rarely finds on the usually clear dry days of October.

Myer's Point - South

Looking down toward Ithaca New York from Myer's Point.


This view of Cayuga Lake is often guessed to be some cove in New England, even by residents of Ithaca, New York, but I took it just a few miles north of the city. It evokes the image of the many sailboats that skim the water in the summer, just as the seagulls are skimming it in this panoramic photograph. The light on the waters leads the eye down toward Ithaca with it's glacially carved hills rising up behind.
